Wait, Carnage has his own series? Nice, I'll give it a try.

That future spidey cover looks really really cool, and the carnage one holy shit
GizmoEl - 7/16/2014, 9:18 AM
Spiderman 2099 looks the absolute best. Wow that's stunning
LoudLon - 7/16/2014, 9:23 AM
The Spider-Man 2099 cover is bad-ass, but as for the rest, I think "amazing" is an overstatement.
Superior - 7/16/2014, 9:28 AM
Spider-Man 2099 #45 is the best, you can't beat that.

Pedrito - 7/16/2014, 9:29 AM
I'm gonna miss David Aja's magnificent Hawkeye covers.
Dustellar - 7/16/2014, 9:36 AM
All-New Invaders #11.

SKOne - 7/16/2014, 9:39 AM
Deathlok looks great, hopefully Mike Peterson ends up looking more like that in Season 2 of Agents of Shield.
marvel72 - 7/16/2014, 9:46 AM
love spider-man 2099,marvel 75th anniversary celebration,uncanny x-men & what Dustellar posted all new invaders.
Bl00dwerK - 7/16/2014, 9:46 AM
Okay, I do not like Carnage or Venom or any of those symbiote spider-fools. That said, the Carnage cover is my favorite out of that list. See how objective I can be when it comes to amazing art?
MericawithanM - 7/16/2014, 9:46 AM
I really dig that hawkeye cover
TheBrownHornet - 7/16/2014, 9:51 AM

RetroFit - 7/16/2014, 11:22 AM
That's a lot of amazing covers. Spider 2099 is probably my fav of the bunch, though. That's incredible!
breakUbatman - 7/16/2014, 12:05 PM
Hawkeye and Carnage for me
pesmerga44 - 7/16/2014, 3:36 PM
I like the Marvel 75th anniversary issue cover very Alex Rossesgue and if you are going to have a similar style why not make it like easily one if not the best artist in the business. Though I will say the Carnage cover is probably the best of the bunch.
Cles - 7/17/2014, 11:28 AM
Wow, I'm loving that 75th anniversary cover. A lot.
bropous - 7/23/2014, 9:59 AM
I prefer the Avengers v X-Men cover.
